Tecno Mobile launches the Phantom 8 in Kenya for Kshs.37,000

Tecno Mobile has today unveiled the Tecno Phantom 8 in Kenya. The new addition to the Tecno family was launched at an event held at the Sarova Stanley Hotel, Nairobi.

We have already so much about the Phantom 8 in our previous articles. But remember the phone was first launched in Dubai on 22nd making it the 2nd global launch Tecno was doing as it seeks to tap into the Middle East market.

“The MEA region is very dynamic and one that appreciates intelligent innovation coupled with aesthetically pleasing design.’’ Ray Hou, Marketing Manager TECNO Mobile Limited, Kenya said ‘’The all-new Phantom 8 embraces the region’s requirements and is more powerful than ever in both speed and photo quality,” he added.

The Tecno Phantom 8 which bears the theme ‘’Capture Your Legend’’ comes with a 20 MP front-facing camera alongside a smart dual selfie flash. Moreover, Tecno says the double front ring flash ensures taking photos even in a low light environment.

“We are pleased to continue our successful journey in Kenya to bring about an enhanced mobile experience to those in the country and region as well,” Ray concluded.

Other features include a 5.7 inches screen size with full HD and also comes equipped with a whopping 6GB of RAM and 64GB with an option to expand it to up to 2TB using a microSD card.

The Tecno Phantom 8 also runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with HiOS 3.0 from TECNO Mobile on top. The HiOS promises more optimized and sleeker user interface, something we will really be checking out during our review. There are also rumors of a future OS update to Android 8.0 Oreo for the device. We will be on the lookout for that and update you immediately the update is made.

The Tecno Phantom 8 will be selling at Kshs 37,000. You can read more about the specs here.
